North Cyprus News - Cyprus Today 10th April 2021North Cyprus News on the front page of Cyprus Today 10th April 2021 includes what I guess is an empty threat to crush corruption, this time in KibTek electricity company. This might be because the company wants the government to pay its bills.

MINISTER: I’LL CRUSH KIB-TEK ‘CORRUPTION’ – ECONOMY and Energy Minister Erhan Arıklı has vowed to crush “corruption” within the Cyprus Turkish Electricity Authority (KıbTek) with a “sledgehammer”. The tentacles of profiteers have “infiltrated” all state institutions “like an octopus” he said. Dr Arıklı, who is also the Deputy Prime Minister, made the comments as he revealed that KıbTek’s funds are being “siphoned off” to the tune of 300 million TL a year and that he had prevented further losses of some $2.2 million by stopping a previous tender for fuel oil, which is burned to generate electricity.

Tributes for ‘bubbly’ expat killed in hit-and-run incident – TRIBUTES have been paid to a “bubbly” and “full-oflife” Lapta-based expat who died in a hit-and-run incident. David Shepherd, 60, originally from Edgware, London, was walking along the Girne-Güzelyurt main road in a southerly direction between the 13th and 14th kilometres of the road near Karşıyaka last Saturday, April 3, at about 8pm when he was hit by a vehicle. He died at the scene.

THE REST

Strike at Ercan airport – PASSENGERS were left sleeping on seats at Ercan airport after trade unions carried out a six-hour strike on Monday. The action was in protest against the government’s decision to delay an increase to this year’s cost of living allowance for public sector workers by four months.

One day ‘warning strike’ at state hospital – PUBLIC sector worker trade unions KamuSen and Ktams staged a one-day “warning” strike at Gazimağusa State Hospital on Tuesday over claims of understaffing at its laboratories and the rest of the hospital. Only emergency care was provided during the strike that continued until 4pm. Kamu-Sen and Ktams leaders Metin Atan and Güven Bengihan made statements to the press in front of the hospital.
